Da Silva Vineyards and Winery

Da Silva is a family-owned winery with deep roots on the Naramata Bench. The family of Richard Da Silva, the winery’s co-owner and winemaker, emigrated to the Okanagan Valley from Portugal in 1955 and purchased an orchard on the Naramata Bench in 1955.

Today, Da Silva constitutes 11 vineyards, each specially selected for distinct terroir and qualities. This attention to detail and craftsmanship combine to produce premium, small-lot wines. Many of Da Silva’s red wines are aged for 36 months or more. The Merlot is a particular stand-out.

Seated tastings are provided inside the elegant wine shop. Five wines selected by the winemaker are offered, with the tasting experience being around 40 minutes long. Notably, the tasting fee is not refundable upon purchase.

Da Silva is situated on Upper Bench Road, with gorgeous views of surrounding vineyards, Penticton, and Munson Mountain from behind the main building. The Kitchen, the winery’s Portuguese tapas restaurant, takes full advantage with a beautiful covered patio.

Restaurant diners are encouraged to share and enjoy a relaxed, slow-paced meal (Mediterranean-style!) As many as 30 different small plate options are available, with the menu changing often to cater to the current season and local ingredients.
